“Thank you for honouring me at Wembley” – Ikeme tells Wolves supporters

Super Eagles goalkeeper, Carl Ikeme has tendered an appreciation to his teeming supporters who showed great support in his fight against leukaemia cancer at Wembley on Saturday.

Ninety Wolves supporters travelled down to London on Saturday to unfurl the banner at the national stadium during England’s friendly with Nigeria.

The banner, which is 10m by 10m, was taken to every Wolves away game last season and has now visited Wembley too.

In his message, he says: “I just want to say thank you to Telford Wolves and everyone who has been involved in showing me such great support, and particularly taking your flag around the country, during the season.

“I don’t think people will ever realise how much of a boost it has given me to know that Wolves fans have still been thinking of me, particularly when I have had tough times during the treatment.

“I only need to log on to Twitter to see that support, and to see photos of the flag at Molineux or an away ground, and it has made such a difference.

“I am doing ok, but still having treatment, so, unfortunately, won’t be at Wembley for the game.”
